Profile

Mr. Kevin MacIsaac (Taxonomic Technician)

Kevin MacIssac is originally from Dominion, Nova Scotia. He obtained an undergraduate degree from Acadia University with additional studies at the Bermuda Biological Station for Research and Dalhousie University. Research interests have always centred on species identification and taxonomy. Past projects have included surveys of the mesopelagic crustacean fauna off Nova Scotia, monitoring benthic habitat influenced by aquaculture and various industrial effluents, examining the impacts of mobile fishing gear on benthic invertebrate species, exploratory benthic mapping, and surveys of deep sea corals and coral habitat. Future research interests involve species associated with deep sea corals, ocean habitat mapping (with particular emphasis on taxonomic resolution and methodology), investigating the links between habitats and species, as well as working with local groups interested in accuracy and precision of species identification.

Key words: taxonomy, benthic, impact, habitat, mapping, identification
